New York Police Department detectives are now formally looking into a man’s claim that former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer crudely threatened to stab him in a Manhattan restaurant.
Jamie Antolini filed a formal complaint Friday at the NYPD 19th Precinct over the Jan. 2 incident. Antolini claimed that Spitzer threatened that he would “get a f—king knife and stab you right in your f—g c—k!” after overhearing him praise a longtime Spitzer enemy.
The complaint was listed as a harassment violation, according to Antolini’s attorney, Joe Murray.
Murray, who also represented former escort Svetlana Travis Zakharova whom Spitzer also allegedly threatened, confirmed to Fox News that he wants a formal investigation into Spitzer.
He suggested others are coming forward, saying another man called him with a complaint similar to Antolini’s.
